Success at the sales

I was very lucky in the sales on a recent trip to London so I thought I would let you all know what I found in case you are still on the hunt for some bargains (and you like what I bought, otherwise this won't be much use to you ;)).

First up, after a visit to the Saatchi gallery to marvel at some art, we popped into nearby Zara where I saw these boots I had spotted before Christmas...now reduced to £20 (from about £60 I think).


Next we went into Comptoir des Cotonniers (where I’ve never bought anything because it’s usually too expensive) and my sister got this really nice jacket reduced from £160 to £60 and I got this skirt reduced to £33.




Aside from that, I stocked up on winter warmers from Uniqlo in the shape of two long-sleeved thermal tops from their heat tech range reduced to £9.90 and a cashmere crew neck jumper reduced to £39.90 (from £80ish) to stay cosy.

When I was in Edinburgh over Christmas, I also found this Pins and Needles coat reduced to £40 from £140 in Urban Outfitters. It makes me feel a wee bit like Sherlock Holmes with the funny cape attachment but I like it.


Have you found any goodies? Please share if you have...not that I need any encouragement to hit the shops.

  1. I got that very same coat in Brussels (mine is blue, but I love that grey shade) - same discount too! :) Best finding of the year so far!

    1. What a coincidence! Yeah, mine is blue too. It just came out grey in the picture (see new year's resolutions to take better pics!). It's good you can take the cape off when not doing detective work ;)
